Hello and welcome to Apple Support Communities christenfromcalhoun,

I see that your Dictation is not working on your iPhone after updating the software. I use dictation on my iPhone frequently, so I'd be happy to help.

Let's double check your settings and make sure that Dictation is enabled. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Scroll to the bottom to Enable Dictation. If it is already enabled, toggle it off and then restart your iPhone. Once it is powered back on, go back into your settings and toggle Dictation back on and test to see if the issue remains.

Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Let me know how this goes.

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
Have a great day!
